Going to Milliways tonight for a bite to eat and to see the big show. (It's nearby, but it always seems to take a long time to get there.) My friend told me that "the friendly cow" was delicious, but I'm in the mood for something more adventurous. Any suggestions? posted by Dented But Not Broken at 6:14 AM - 13 answers
